With the potential threats of piracy, terrorism, and the ever-present criminal issues at port and at anchor, security concerns are an increasingly harsh reality for superyacht owners

The Polaris Approach

Polaris yacht security officers operate in a discrete way delivering a ‘soft skills’ approach alongside the provision of the security provided to the HNW client. This is in compliance with the mandatory Manila Agreement crew training requirements.   If required, and appropriate, officers can be armed and come equipped with independent satellite communications and survival equipment to emergency use.

All yacht protection officers are also capable of operating on land, providing discrete close protection.  Male or female officers who also possess the following additional skills are available on request:

  • armoured car driving
  • hostile environment security
  • medicine in remote areas
  • paediatric first aid
